A Darker Shade of Magic 01

Kell is one of the last Travelers - magicians with a rare, coveted ability to travel between parallel universes - as such, he can choose where he lands.

There's Grey London, dirty and boring, without any magic, ruled by a mad King George. Then there's Red London, where life and magic are revered, and the Maresh Dynasty presides over a flourishing empire. White London, ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne - a place where people fight to control magic, and the magic fights back, draining the city to its very bones. And once upon a time, there was Black London... but no one speaks of that now.

Officially, Kell is the Red Traveler, personal ambassador and adopted Prince of Red London, carrying the monthly correspondences between the royals of each London.

Unofficially, Kell is a smuggler, servicing people willing to pay for even the smallest glimpses of a world they'll never see - a dangerous hobby, and one that has set him up for accidental treason. Fleeing into Grey London, Kell runs afoul of Delilah Bard, a cut-purse with lofty aspirations, first robs him, then saves him from a dangerous enemy, and then forces him to spirit her to another world for a proper adventure.

But perilous magic is afoot, and treachery lurks at every turn. To save all of the worlds, Kell and Lila will first need to stay alive - and that is proving trickier than they hoped.

An absolutely mesmerizing start of the trilogy with two very intricate main characters!
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 05.08.2019

There isn't just one world. There are three. And London is where they all meet. Grey London where magic has died, Red London where magic thrieves, White London where it's the key to power. And once, there has been Black London, but it was consumed by magic. Meet Kell, a magician with the ability to travel between these Londons. ... There isn't just one world. There are three. And London is where they all meet. Grey London where magic has died, Red London where magic thrieves, White London where it's the key to power. And once, there has been Black London, but it was consumed by magic. Meet Kell, a magician with the ability to travel between these Londons. And Lila, a thief who dreams of freedom and her own ship. When a smuggling goes entirely wrong, these two are forced to work together to safe their worlds - and their own skin. With "A Darker Shade of Magic" V. E. Schwab has created an enthralling and absolutely stunning world with vivid characters and a great, driving plot! The dynamics between the two main characters Kell and Lila are very well balanced - where Lila is bold and daring, Kell is thoughtful and reserved, where she is energetic, he is calm. And they both have a great sense of humour, Kell's being dryer and Lila's more sarcastic which lightens the overall, slightly dark mood. As the story progresses it picks up the pace a lot which makes it harder and harder to put the book down. For all fans of "Neverknight" (Jay Kristoff), "Six of Crows" (Leigh Bardugo) and "The Name of the Wind" (Patrick Rothfuss)!

Einzigartig, fesselnd und mutige Protagonisten

Obwohl ich anfangs Schwierigkeiten hatte in die Welt einzutauchen da die verschiedenen Welten sehr komplex sind hat mich die Story dann doch gepackt. Diese Art von Buch habe ich vorher noch nicht entdeckt und das Wortbuilding ist gigantisch (ich würde es aber keinem Englischanfänger empfehlen). Die Geschichte ist so fesselnd gestaltet und bietet alles, was ein Leserherz braucht: Magie, Abenteuer, Spannung und einzigartige Charaktere. Zudem bietet sie auch Humor besonders bei den Dialogen zwischen den Protagonisten Lila und Kell. Ich konnte mir die Gegenden und Location einfach super gut vorstellen und bin richtig in die Geschichte eingetaucht, den Schnee auf der Haut gespürt oder das Bier in den Tavernen gerochen. Eine absolute Herzensempfehlung von mir!

easy and fun to read
